Paper Sandwiches

Sometimes I really screw things up.  Like yesterday.

I had made sandwiches for my kids' lunches.  Nice turkey and cheese sandwiches. Or so I thought.  Apparently, I didn't do such a good job, because when my kids came home from school, they asked me the same question:  "Mom, why was there paper in my sandwich?"

"Paper?" I asked.  "There was paper in your sandwich?"  It just couldn't be!

Yes, it could.  When I added the cheese, the stupid paper that they put between the slices in the package, stuck.  I had given my kids  turkey, cheese, paper sandwiches.

I had to do some quick thinking.  "Oh, yeah,"  I said.  "Paper.  It just adds a little flavor!"

    1. No. Nothing was printed on it. I don't think packaging companies are allowed to use print on paper that is against food.

    1. I don't know. I've never tried eating paper. It probably tastes like chicken.

  7. Paper comes from trees and trees are plants and plants give fruits and veggies, which are full of vitamins.

  9. At least they noticed. My sister did the same thing, only realising afterwards. Her two children ate them not even having noticed anything amiss.

  10. Everyone needs more fiber. I'll have an origami and mayo sandwich, please, Ms. Ellis!

  11. Thanks for the giggle. Guess they didn't like the added fiber.
